what do i ask or tell the psych. about my condition that his last three changes didn't do anything but hurt my finances between him and the pharmacy.the adderall only worked once and now i am up to 60 m.g.e.r.in the first and another 60m.g.e.r. the second, should i get off the extended release meds and ask to go to 90 m.g. i.r./each dose or ask him to switch to something else and to what do i switch too/ dexedrine/or desoxyn.i don't think he will go for either one with out a sleep disorder test and that is the last thing i want
The adderall doesn't work anymore @ 120 mg. A day,do I ask for more or a change and to what?

i would say most of my problem is narcolepsy 90 % and the rest add/adhd,but i don't think falling asleep standing up talking to your boss at work falls under adhd,sleep attacks quite often.even after a good nights sleep i will be driving and falling asleep while i am talking to whoever is in the truck.

Drugs like adderal contain amphetamines and they are just not suitable for long term use because your body gets use to them then you have to keep upping the dose to get the same effect and this can cause dangerous side effects,such as heart problems, liver and kidney disorders, even sudden death... Also these type of drugs are not a cure and they can also cause addiction. I dont think psychiatrists tell people the full facts about the drugs they prescribe. Have you thought of alternative medicine such as homeopathic or herbal which have no nasty side effects ?I am also very skeptical that ADHD exists as there is no definate lab or blood test to confirm it.

What is it you're being treated for? And what is the reason why you feel the medication isn't working? (Just want to make sure I understand :] )
